We stayed at The Front Village Hotel for 11 night in Dec and had a lovely time. Close to everything or a short Tuktuk ride to Patong. Just a short stroll to beautiful Karon beach or laze by the relazing pool. The rooms were clean and had everything you needed. The staff always had a smile and were very helpful especially the security guard who ensures you get safely across the road very time you venture out. I woyld highly recommend the Front Village Hotel.
